Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Neither this nursing home's overall score nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. Its best area was short-term care, but even there it received a D. This is still a poor score. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Based on its poor rating in this category, we were not shocked to discover this facility offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that it performed better in this area, with 53.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection score. Generally, this means we found some major red flags on its government inspection reports. With nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with 12 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also need to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines recently in excess of $50,000. This usually indicates that CMS inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of failed inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients and the levels of training of those nurses. With only 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below average. This facility also had terrible marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its low nursing hours. For starters, we looked at the percentage of patients sustaining pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at more than twice the national average in this datapoint. This is quite alarming when you consider that so many pressure ulcers are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. This ended up sealing the nursing home's fate of earning a weak nursing grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated only 87.23404 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 1.15 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
